Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul”. - Oscar Wilde

BUSY HANDS

  • Help calm and create. The shower is the best example of this. Who doesn’t have great ideas in the shower!
  • Some people even keep a chalkboard in the shower to capture these thoughts as they arise.
  • Fidget spinners, jigsaw puzzles, playing with a bead necklace, a zipper, are all ways to help calm and stimulate creativity.

CHEWING

  • Pacifiers help babies feel calm.
  • Chewing on gum can also help older children with ADHD feel calmer.
  • The Therapy Shoppe carries a great range of items for children to chew on. Beware of choking hazards. Not for young children

SMELL

  • Certain smells or essential oils can be transformative.
  • Most people know the tranquility of lavender, the vibrancy of citrus, the calm of a forest.
  • It isn’t just the smell, but the essence of the goodness of the plant or herb itself that is transformative.
  • Please contact us if you’d like to learn more about plants and essential oils, we have a research department specifically dedicated to this area (including the music of the plants developed in Italy).

EXERCISE

  • Need we say more? To pacify those with hyperactivity, mind, and body need to be calmed and nurtured, often for hours, or many times a day.
  • If exercise coincides with the great outdoors, it’s usually the most beneficial since nature is known to be grounding and rejuvenating.

YOGA & TAI CHI

  • Are also known to help enormously with ADHD. Accessing the body in this way helps calm the mind.
  • A calm mind helps the body relax, but it works the other way too; a calm body helps the mind relax.

ROCKING

  • Rocking can be a form of self-soothing.
  • Restless legs may release stress and anxiety.
  • It’s important the child has these outlets, rather than internalizing emotions. Better still, the anxiety and need to self soothe is addressed and accepted.

DIET

  • Chemically dyed candies, caffeine, and processed foods are known to agitate children with ADHD
  • Children with ADHD often have a pure and sensitive constitution, both physically and emotionally.
  • The more natural the food, the healthier your child will be.
  • Journal on what agitates and what calms them down, bearing in mind that their emotional state will also have an impact on their digestion too.
